A restoration of Franz Liszt’s unfinished Opera…
Louis Lortie and conductor Gardner present us dazzling intensely athletic accounts of the three Saint-Saëns concertos, brilliant and scintillating.
BACH: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I: Preludes & Fugues, 1-12, BWV 846-857 – Mordecai Shehori, p. – Cembal d’amour
Mordecai Shehori finds a new and vocally inspired Bach in the WTC as edited and amended by Chopin, a true fusion of kindred spirits.
LISZT, CHOPIN, PIXIS, THALBERG, HERZ and CZERNY: “Hexaméron” – solo pieces by the above named composers plus Leon Buche – Johann Blanchard, Leon Buche, Carlos Goicoechea, Caroline Sorieux, Kanako Yoshikane and Clauius Tanski, piano(s) – MD&G
A grand 19th century concert as realized in stunning SACD sound for the modern world.
FRANZ LIZST: Tasso, Lamento e Trionfo; Totentanz; other works – Beethoven Orch. Bonn/ Stefan Blunier – MD&G
Works from two distinct periods of Liszt’s life but on a common theme. If you have a liking for Liszt, this should please.
More than a mere “primer,” this spectacular collation offers some wickedly brilliant and poetic renderings of Liszt’s music for his bicentennial.
